With the release of Windows 10, version 1903, new validation checks were added to InfVerif tool, which can result in driver submissions for the Windows Hardware Compatibility Program (WHCP) made to the Partner Center to be rejected. To allow for additional time to prepare for these changes, the InfVerif errors detailed below, will be ignored for WHCP driver submissions.


Follow up communications will be made once a date has been established to reintroduce these requirements.


When established, these checks will be run against all driver submissions and for all OS levels. Driver submissions which exhibit the following errors, will be rejected:

Error 1217:

InfVerif failed for Driver. Partial Log:Error 1217 in xxxxxxxx.inf, line x : Invalid driver version (1.4.1), expecting w.x.y.z, where each segment is between 0-65536.

Error 1330:

InfVerif failed for Driver. Partial Log:Error 1330 in xxxxxxx.inf, line xxxxx: Cannot copy multiple different sources files ('<filename>' and ' <filename> ') to destination file 'C:\Windows\system32\<filename>'.

Error 1331, 1332, and 1333:

These errors are all the same problem but relating to registy values, registry values within services, and services respectively.  Methods to resolve these errors are similar to the methods used to resolve Error 1330.
